GOLD MEDAL | Melbourne International Wine Competition 2021
4.5 STARS 92/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Thorn Clarke have a long history of making quality South Australian wines that completely over-deliver and this Gold Medal winning cabernet does exactly that. With classic cabernet characters of blackberry and tomato leaf, and fine, firm tannins, this delicious red is both powerful and poised. A must-buy for any Aussie cabernet enthusiast.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "It's attractively ripe and inviting on the nose showing dark plum, cassis, dried herb and roast meat notes, leading to a flavoursome palate offering ripe fruit flavours backed by fine polished tannins. Well balanced and splendidly appealing."
The winery writes "Deep red in colour with vibrant purple hues. The nose is plentiful with classic Cabernet characters of blackcurrant, plums and a hint of tomato leaf. The palate is driven by blackberry, satsuma plums and anise. The tannins are fine yet firm and there is a powerful fruit density. All together this creates a wine with great drive and length."
